My name is Adam Bigler, although I'm called Elder Bigler right now. I'm currently serving a two year, full-time mission as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm from American Fork, Utah, and I've pretty much lived here all my life. I love this church and the Gospel because of the happiness that it has brought to me and to so many others. The doctrines of eternal families, repentance, Christ's atonement, modern-day revelation, and the plan of happiness are all so simple and beautiful, after the same manner and pattern with which Christ taught during his ministry. I'm so thankful for the Book of Mormon and for Joseph Smith, the man who translated it and restored this gospel. I know that our Prophet today is a man of God, and that he speaks only the truth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God, the most true and accurate book upon the earth. I testify that it is from God, and that we can all come to know of its truth through prayer and the Spirit.

I'm so thankful for all my family and friends who have supported me through the years. It's a rough world to grow up in, but it sure is a lot easier with amazing leaders by your side, and I thank them as well. I'm thankful for this wonderful opportunity I have to dedicate a small part of my life to the Lord. I know that this is what I need to do, and I know that all of the experiences I will have will help me to be the man I aspire to be and bring me closer to Christ.
